Known as one of Leeds' most family friendly suburbs, Morley is a large town, located just five miles from Leeds city centre, with an identity and atmosphere all of its own. The pedestrianised high street, the traditional indoor market and the Morley Arts Festival, all bring character and culture to the town. Morley is close to both the M62 and M1 making it easy to access Leeds, Wakefield and Bradford from your new home. 

However, there's plenty to stay home for, in your lovely new house in Morley. The area is much leafier with more green space than the city. It also has a leisure centre with two swimming pools, gym, sports courts and a range of fitness classes. Schools are also good with a great choice of nursery and primary schools as well as the highly rated secondary school, The Morland Academy.
